it is on the brake cylinder at the rear brake shoes...usually it has gear like wheels that turn that can tighten as u go in reverse to adjust the shoes....being called self adjusting refers to the notion that it is adjusted by the car not necesarley by hand...

To adjust the rear brakes on the 2001 Ford Focus ZX3, first remember these brakes are self-adjusting.
